day trip.





On Saturday, we ended up taking a quick roadtrip down to Chris' grandmother's cottage on Long Island. It's a magical place straight out of a novel and it takes my breath away. Silas got dunked in the chilly Long Island Sound for the first time, and had blast climbing logs and tossing stones into a pile. He's a fearless little kid and loved splashing in the waves and tasting the salty water on his lips. We got to spend some more time with Chris' parents and grandma, and it was worth the trip just to see Silas sitting with her, reading a book on the couch. I think it's going to be one of our favorite getaway spots while we live here and getting to hear stories from Chris' grandma's childhood while watching the sailboats race through the Sound is just icing on the cake.
